Transition and natural hair care on a budget

Transition is the process/journey that your hair goes through, from being relaxed to natural. This process can be hard not just on your hair but also on hair products . You may feel excited about starting your new journey like I was but then after going through a lot of trial an error products you may want to start with making a budget, especially if you are not working.

Transitioning  on a budget may seem difficult at first, especially if you are a heavy spender . The truth is most product you will try won't really be necessary. If you are thinking of using natural hair products , you will find that most are a little more expensive than what you would normally use . Transition is the best time to experiment, but it can be costly, that is why a proper hair care budget is not a bad idea to keep in mind. My current hair care budget is only $10 a month.
